During South East Regional Fruit & Vegetable Conference 2014 (SERFVC), Interstate Container will showcase Greencoat® wax-free boxes at Booth # 429 – 431 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center in Savannah, GA. The large educational conference and trade show in southeastern United States will take place from January 9 – 12, 2014.
Fresh fruit and vegetable growers and packers can meet with Interstate Container representatives at booth # 429 – 431 to learn more about Greencoat® 100% recyclable corrugated packaging, as well as view a live demonstration of the recyclable box’s strength. At the event, Interstate Container aims to stay up-to-date with and discuss the latest trends with fresh produce growers, vendors, and suppliers.
Interstate Container ships over 5 million recyclable boxes a month, with growers using Greencoat® boxes up and down the east coast to protect and preserve fresh produce, such as cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, peaches, peppers, squash, tomatoes, and yams, in addition to seedlings.
FBA-certified Greencoat® boxes are water resistant, cost less than traditional waxed boxes, and offer the strength needed for fresh produce packing and shipping in any environmental condition. The compostable corrugated box offers sustainable solutions for companies in need of strong and moisture-resistant corrugated packaging.
